1. Remote Work. As mobile devices have become more and more common, lawyers have been taking increasing advantage of the ability to work remotely. The days when lawyers were tied to offices are over.
2. Freelancing. Just as lawyers are detaching themselves from the office, many are detaching themselves from the formal law firm structure entirely. Once a rarity, legal freelancing is now a viable career and freelancers are in increasing demand.
3. Going Paperless. As technology has advanced and mobile devices have proliferated, the need to cart around boxes of documents has greatly diminished. The amount of documents that once filled an entire conference room can now be accessed on a laptop or iPad, freeing lawyers from a life surrounded by mountains of paper.
4. Legal Tech. Few things have changed the practice of law in the past decade as much as the advent of legal technology. It seems that new solutions are emerging every day, and that trend won’t stop any time soon.
5. eDiscovery. Technology has not just changed the practice of law, it has revolutionized the discovery process. eDiscovery has been on the rise in the past decade, and we’re at the point where traditional paper discovery is nearly a thing of the past.
6. Social Media. Social media isn’t just for sharing clever memes and viral cat videos any more – it’s a legitimate tool for marketing and even doing business.
7. Security. Technology has unquestionably brought new levels of convenience to the practice of law, but with that convenience has come a new potential threat to data security.
8. Billable Hours. The viability of the traditional billable hour model has been under fire for some time now, and that debate will continue in the coming year as clients increasingly push back on high legal bills and demand more efficiencies.
9. Legal Process Outsourcing. As part of the desire to curb legal costs, more and more companies have been looking beyond traditional law firms for legal services, turning instead to alternative legal service providers that promise greater efficiency and lower rates.
10. Millennials. We’re in the midst of a clear generational shift in the legal industry. As baby boomers are retiring in increasing numbers, millennials are graduating from law school and entering the workforce.

1. While value-based care has always been an area ripe for innovation, 2021 presents a unique set of circumstances that point to a surge of innovation and disruption in both payment and care delivery models. Value-based care had been a priority for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) under the Trump administration, but there is no reason to expect a change of course away from value-based care. In fact, the Biden administration’s health care goals will likely require an increased emphasis on cost savings, which may result in an even greater push towards value-based care. Some news outlets are reporting that Elizabeth Fowler is a front-runner to lead the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation,further signaling that CMS’s momentum on value-based care will continue.Commercial payors also continue to push towards innovative payment and care models as COVID-19 has highlighted the inequities in the healthcare delivery system and challenges for providers.

1. Significant generational pressures are building around Subjective Partner Compensation Systems – We’ve seen a real uptick in compensation system work from generationally split partnerships wherein the message from the senior guard is, “trust us, just as we trusted those who came before us,” to which the junior guard responds, “we cannot trust a black box, so please show us how you reach decisions because there must be some methodology.”
2. Garbage data must become valuable – One of the most valuable, untapped assets in many law firms is the raw data in the various systems the firm maintains.
3. Take the next step in the evolution of your profitability reporting – A key lesson learned from the last recession is that the focus of the law firm business model must shift with deliberate speed from revenue generation to profit generation.
4. Really understand your culture – Culture is the complex organizational glue that keeps a group of potential free-agent lawyers re-assembling as a law firm each day.
5. Take leadership succession seriously, regardless of how many years you have left – It is amazing how many law firm leaders reach the end of their terms and they or the partnership conclude that no one else is qualified, prepared, and willing to take the position.

1. "Business" refers to everything that can employ an individual. A business can occupy the labor, attention, and time of a person, for the purpose of earning a profit or livelihood. Engaging in a single act that relates to a specific business isn't considered to be carrying on or engaging in the business, but a series of acts would be considered as engaging in the business. Work, business, and labor aren't synonyms of one another. Although labor can be business, engaging in business isn't always labor. For example, if you made an agreement to purchase a good on a Sunday, but this is prohibited in the vendor's business laws, you would be breaking the law.
